Will the USA FREEDOM ACT protect you from Big Brother at the NSA? Until these problems in the legislation are dealt with, you can’t be sure. […]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

Together, these bills are known as the Fair Minimum Wage Act, and if passed they would increase the minimum wage from its current $7.25/hour to $10.10/hour over the next two years. After […]
Puppies are cute.
Women who wear cosmetics are cute.
Who is more cute?
U.S. Representative James Moran made his choice yesterday when he introduced H.R. 4148, a bill that would gradually end the testing of cosmetics products on animals.
Moran says puppies are more cute. Do you agree with his choice?
There are 435 members of the House of Representatives.
Guess how many of them supported a bill to recognize February 12 as Darwin Day in honor of Charles Darwin and evolutionary biology?
Now look and see.
How close did you get?
In the 20th century, the South, desperate to preserve its system of racist social hierarchy, set up Jim Crow laws at the state level, creating explicit legal discrimination on the basis of ethnic identity across the region. The rights that many Americans enjoyed in the North and West were taken away from them when they […]
You know a speech will be a peach when a member of Congress puts a title like “Shame On You” in the Congressional Record. That’s what U.S. Representative Louis Gohmert did yesterday, when he stood up and gave a little rant, opening up with the complaint, “Mr. Speaker, today, once again, the President has unilaterally, […]
